where was this "rise" of HD DVD?

The short time between when the 1st HD DVD player was released and the first blu-ray player was released. For that number of weeks HD DVD couldn't do anything but rise

Rise of HD-DVD means, From the Launch of HD-DVD to the Launch of the PS3.

HD-DVD: Dude, I almost had you.

Blu-Ray: You almost had me? You never had me you never had your CAR!

Now ALL instead of just MOST of the good SH!T in high definition will be on BD. Considering how long other format wars have lasted, this was relatively short and to the point.

I'm sorry to say it but unless you bought a PS3 that had Blu-Ray included, there was no reason in my opinion to go out and buy a stand alone HD player of ANY kind until this formate debacle was resolved, that is if you cherish your consumer dollars.

We should all rejoice now that there is one HD formate to rule them all, LOL.
